Jai-Hua Yen Posted January 6, 2021 Share Posted January 6, 2021 (edited) Hello! I'm starting to look at Stat/Biostat PhD programs in 2022 since application for 2021 Fall will be closed soon. And I hope for advice as to what schools I should apply and what I can do to enhance my application while I’m in the industry now.
